O​ff-​C​ycle Payment: Fee Increase

Effective January 1, 2015, the fee charged to departments for an off-cycle payment will increase to $125 per payment. This fee applies to a payment requested by a department before the next regular cycle which occurs outside of the normal on-cycle semi-monthly or monthly pay schedule. The fee is not charged in cases where Human Resource Services is required to process off-cycle payments for normal business processes ( e.g., terminations, severances).

Human Resource Services requests your full cooperation in ensuring that all appointments, timesheets and payment requests are made according to the published pay period schedules. Please ensure that your duly authorized pay action forms and ePAFs (Smart Forms) are processed according to the published schedules to avoid unnecessary off-cycle payments. To avoid off-cycle payments for vacation payouts, please include vacation payout amounts with termination paperwork.
